    A little daytrip I took yesterday north of Stockholm.
    This is my steed, a Honda Zoomer a 50cc scooter.

    I would like to have a bigger ride, but my wallet says no. But next year I will probably have the money to me a little bigger ride.

    One more thing, I suck at the art of photography.
    A couple of pics overlooking some parts of Stockholm.

    Then I did arrived at Wira Bruk an old weapons factory, they started making weapons here around 1630 and it ended 1948. The main product was swords/rapiers for the swedish army. In the old times we were very good at making war.

    I think that's the first time I've seen a GPS on a 50cc scooter. :freaky

    Beautiful ride and great pictures. Thanks for showing me a part of the world I've not yet seen.

    Thanks everybody.

    There was nearly no cars at all, they got bigger roads that are faster more boring, so I got the small and narrow roads for myself. :D

    Well Sweden is a quite big country and we are not more than around 9 million who lives in Sweden.
    There are more people in the summer in the area I did ride around in , a lot of Stockholmare have summerhouses here.

    Great photos and a great scooter. Thanks for sharing. I know what you mean by the small back roads. My way to travel even here in the US . Much less traffic and people and you get to see the really country at it's best.

    What you ride doesn't matter as much as being able to ride.

    Great pics, you do not suck at photography. I am one of many, I'm sure, that can only dream of riding riding north of Stockholm, as much as I would love to, so I enjoyed these picture very much.

    I think a lot of us look forward to more posts of your wonderful country. So thianks for putting this up.:clap :clap

    I did forget one photo.
    We like roundabouts here in Sweden.
    Last year something started to happened to them, spontanious art. Somebody placed a littled dog made of wood in the middle of one roundabout somewhere in Sweden. Soon nearly every roundabout had a dog made of some sort of material.
    This is a variant of a "Roundabout Dog". :D
